Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
Hide electrical cords behind furniture or curtains, or elevate them to keep them out of your dog's mouth.
Your dog may like to chew, but putting electrical cords in his mouth can be more than a nasty habit -- he could be injured or even killed if he receives enough shock. Step 4Apply an unpleasant-tasting compound -- such as hot pepper sauce or Bitter Apple -- to the cord. Step 5Do not leave your dog unattended until he has completed training to leave the cords alone, and do not allow him access to the whole house.
Pet owners know this scene all too well: you walk into a room and find your beloved pet eating your television cord, your phone charging cord, or some other important electronic cord which should not be gnawed.

Place them behind or under furniture where he can't see them -- or get his mouth around them. A chew toy or rawhide bone can give his teeth the chewing relief he needs -- especially younger dogs -- but keep your power cords safe. Avoid toys that have pieces that resemble the plastic on common electrical cables and cords.
Cats can be a bit trickier to train, so if your cat isn't responding positively to number one or two, simply wrap trouble cords in tin foil. Use specialty products geared toward protecting the cords -- and your pet -- such as a cable turtle or cord cover, both of which hide the cords from your dog's access.

If necessary, restrict him to one area of the house -- such as a portion of the kitchen -- where there are no cords as you continue training. In addition, when you catch your pet chewing on a cord, be sure to offer up appropriate toys after offering discipline. Most cats will hate the texture and sound and will alter their behavior, and after a month or so of your kitty leaving the cords alone, you can remove the tin foil.
